MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Ryan Doumit's two-run triple off Tom Wilhelmsen with one out in the ninth inning sent the Minnesota Twins to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

This was the third blown save of the season for Wilhelmsen (0-1), all in his last four tries. The right-hander pitched a perfect ninth for the save Friday night, but he walked the first three batters he faced a day later after inheriting a 4-2 lead. Josh Willingham followed with a sacrifice fly, and Doumit — who missed the cycle by a home run — drove in two more for the walk-off win.

Wilhelmsen also issued two walks in a squandered save at San Diego on Wednesday. This one wiped out two homers by Jason Bay and an effective start by Aaron Harang.

Rookie Caleb Thielbar (1-0) picked up his first major league victory with a scoreless ninth inning.
